TODAY, EVERYONE IS SHARING THE FIRST EVER IMAGE OF A BLACK HOLE, BUT NO ONE IS SHARING STUFF ABOUT KATIE BOUMAN, THE YOUNG LADY WHO IS SINGLE-HANDEDLY RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. 3 years ago, MIT grad student Katie Bouman led the creation of a new algorithm to produce the first-ever image of a black hole. She first learned about the imaging project in high school, and decided on the spot she'd dedicate her life to it. GOOD JOB, KATIE!
